Student leadership

Ku-ring-gai High School is a community that values individual worth and the contribution of all its members and we are fortunate to enjoy outstanding community support. Fostering a strong working relationship between students, teachers and parents is at the heart of our ethos, and we firmly believe in promoting mutual respect and an environment that encourages and facilitates achievement.

SRC, Captains and Prefects

The school's Student Representative Council (SRC) consists of a democratically elected group of students from Years 8 to 12. The SRC represents the school with pride and creativity and annually produces a banner statement which reflects their goals and ambitions. The school Captains and Prefects are the leaders of the SRC and are elected by the staff and the senior school. These school leaders have a range of areas of responsibilities including leadership, the environment, school promotion, charity fundraising and promotion of academic studies.

Students involved in the SRC gain excellent leadership qualities that provide them with essential skills in communication, organisation and collaboration.

The SRC gains outstanding experience each year from an annual leadership summit held in North Wahroonga which provides the school with a fresh, positive outlook for the year ahead.

Members of the SRC meet every morning during roll call in order to plan a variety of activities and charity events on behalf of the school.

Previous initiatives include:

  • A school-wide talent quest
  • Establishing school vegetable gardens
  • 'Shave for a Cause' fundraiser
  • A Beyondblue charity event

Students don't have to be school captains or house captains to be considered leaders. We encourage our students to be leaders in the classroom and playground, through their support for other students, or their involvement in academic, sporting, cultural or community events and projects.
